I circled the sentence that describes it as a 2006 Sprinter....showing the low oil pressure warning light.....

What do you think that means??

That was the point. You don't know, or do you? Is it oil level (see picture) or pressure?

Do you have any definitive evidence or not?

Thanks.

I don't have a sprinter but I found the idea of no oil pressure warning very surprising.

A quick google search led me to the Sprinter Forum where several posters clearly stated that the T1N and NCV3 engines do not have oil pressure monitoring of any kind - only oil level.

in my lifetime I have had a lot of different vehicles but I have never heard of a vehicle with no oil pressure monitoring/warning system. Do they figure that if you have lost oil pressure the damage is done and no point adding production costs for a device that tells you it's dead???

That would be hard for me to get used to.

It's on the caption for the 2006..... look at the photo again.

It really doesn't matter... the engine burned up.

FWIW, the T1N really doesn't have an oil pressure sensor system. I don't know about later Sprinters. Here's the screenshot from my '04 owner's manual. The warning lamp is for oil level only.

I missed a few intervening posts when my email pulled this back up, but let me confirm:

Number one, that's not oil pressure - that's oil level.

Number two, that's not a picture of a 2006 Dodge Sprinter dashboard. Here is what one really looks like. Mine.

This is ridiculous. The lack of an oil pressure sensor in Sprinters (ALL NAFTA Sprinters) is a simple and well-known fact. (With a Sprinter's gear-style oil pump, it is nearly impossible to have low oil pressure if the engine has oil in it.) That some people can't believe it does not change this fact. The difference between opinions and facts is also rather well-known.

We may as well argue about the color of the sky. Might I suggest that before deciding to engage with knowledgable members on points of fact (rather than points of opinion), we might all consider taking a minute to ask ourselves "do I really KNOW what I am claiming, or am I basing my claim on an unsupported preconception".

Thank you for listening.

P.S. -- If for some reason you really want an oil pressure sensor, here is how you can install one:
